WWE Superstar Ted DiBiase Talks Nintendo And SmackDown Vs. Raw 2010

Wrestling is perplexing. I live Los Angeles, a sin-ridden city of excess, home to all manner of alternative lifestyles, but there's nothing enjoyed by my hedonistic, no-boundaries friends and neighbors that's half as threatening to heterosexuality as professional wrestling. It combines over-the-top improvisational acting with greased-up musclemen grabbing each other, and yet people in God-fearing, middle America love the stuff. Not that there's anything wrong with that, of course, but jeez, wrestling fans, do you have any idea how that looks to the rest of us?

Anyway, THQ has secured the rights to produce WWE-themed wrestling video games for the next eight years, so strap on your brightly-colored, knee-high boots and break out the Speedo and baby oil!

"This agreement ensures that WWE games will continue to be an important cornerstone of THQ's annual release schedule for the long term," Brian Farrell, THQ President and Chief Executive Officer screamed into a microphone from the center ring. "We look forward to working directly with WWE to expand their brand in the video game space through continued game play innovation and increased online delivery of WWE content."

Am I off-base about wrestling, here?
